Mumbai, April 14 (IANS) Tata Communications Ltd. has inked a deal with TE Data S.A.E., a subsidiary of Telecom Egypt and Egypt’s largest P-based data communications carrier for the expansion of its global VPN (virtual private network) service in Egypt. Tata Communications and TE Data have interconnected their respective MPLS (multi-protocol label switching) infrastructures with European and Indian network hubs with TE Data’s facilities in Egypt in order to serve enterprise customers’ growing worldwide connectivity needs.

Genius Wong, senior vice president of Tata Communications (IP and VPN services), said: “Our agreement with TE Data is part of our larger MPLS expansion plan that will include other agreements, as well as the expansion of Tata Communications international on-net, in key strategic regions and emerging markets that are of high value to our customers.”

The agreement allows Tata Communications to seamlessly extend its current end-to-end service capabilities by incorporating the TE Data’s IP MPLS network footprint in Egypt, using more than 800 access points-of-presence.

This agreement is the latest in Tata Communications’ plans to continue to develop and expand its global coverage. Tata Communications already offers its MPLS services in almost 40 countries and expects to reach over 50 by the end of 2008.
